// MultiExporter.jsx
// Version 0.1
// Version 0.2 Adds PNG and EPS exports
// Version 0.3 Adds support for exporting at different resolutions
// Version 0.4 Adds support for SVG, changed EPS behaviour to minimise output filesize
// Version 0.5 Fixed cropping issues
// Version 0.6 Added inner padding mode to prevent circular bounds clipping
